Strange Adventures #206 - Neal Adams art (1st Adams Deadman)


Strange Adventures v1 #206 featuring Deadman, 1967 - Did Lorna's motorcycle gangster brother shoot Boston Brand? Deadman aims to find out in only his second appearance in comics. Despite Neal Adams' best efforts, an insensitive inker obliterates the pencils. The result is poorly defined figures and backgrounds, verging on sloppiness. Even the two splash pages suffer from lack of clarity and poor execution. Adams' pacing and page layouts are the only remnant of his original intent and remain largely intact. Still, the overall impression is one of disappointment and missed opportunity. Thankfully, the artists takes over both pencilling and inking chores with subsequent issues. This story was later reprinted in World's Finest Comics #223. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky (cover). This is number 1 of 15 Strange Adventures issues with Adams art and/or covers.
